Well, it has happened again

ever had an new idea or an idea to improve an already existing product?
then before you could prototype it or even get a working idea on paper, someone else markets the idea. then, try telling you buds that you had the idea first.
It has happened to me several times and it just did again.

I have forever felt cheated by a 27"-28" draw length and the resulting loss of arrow velosity. I have thought of adding a riser extension to move the bow further in front of the hand to increase draw length, but I really dont want to add anything like that to the bow. the only other solution was to capture the bow string or loop deeper into the hand than conventional releases allowed. the caliper would have to be situated nearly by the wrist and the trigger would require some sort of extension.

Well, someone already did it. although its not the way I would have done it, it is the general idea.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a bag catcher for your weed trimmer instead of throwing the clippings all over the place! That's one I've thought about though not hunting related. Thinking is what keeps our mind active..

Never going to make that mistake again. At least, I wont be sitting on my hands if someone beats me to it again. I have another project in the works right now. Three prototypes are in process and to be tested within the next month. If I cant interest the manufacturers in the concept, I will use it this season and attempt to get favorable video of it usage.

Could have used one this weekend. weed whacker extracted a staple that was in the picket fence and threw it 15 yds and into my sons upper lip.
